Affordable Housing Study

by Alex R.

I am using this map as research tool for developing affordable housing. The map separates the various neighborhoods of Chicago in order to narrow down which areas are in the most need of affordable housing. The white circles identify the poverty levels of the given areas. The larger the circle is, the greater the poverty level is in the area. Lastly, there are smaller circles that are used to indicate where in Chicago there are affordable housing developments as well as murder cases. This combination of information will help developers locate areas that are in need of affordable housing while avoiding dangerous areas.
